For the last five years she has called Missouri "home." And in just a few short weeks she will be graduating from Poplar Bluff High School to set off on her newest adventure. This girl has a heart of gold and a a killer smile, but don't let that fool you. Earlier this month she was inducted into the National Technical Honor Society and, in the fall, plans to begin her studies leading to a career in cardiovascular surgery. Armed with her favorite books and a Starbucks frappuccino or two, this young lady isn't letting anything stand in her way.
Follow your dreams, sweet girl. Work hard. Keep in touch with the friends worth keeping. Give to others even when they don't give back. And know that God and your Mama love you fiercely.
